Tips for Choosing the Best Motorcycle Luggage

February 19, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 113

Motorcycle luggage items normally include sissy bar bags, tank bags, saddlebags, panniers, tool bags, windshield bags, tail bags and backpacks. After going through that list, you must be wondering which of these will be great for you. However, before you make up your mind, read the following tips to make the right choice.

- In order to ensure that you are buying the best quality luggage for your bike, you first need to make a list of accessories that you may need to tag along. Normally, what you will need is your toiletries, water bottle, medicines, tool kit, cell phone, weather gear, tire gauge, gloves and flash lights. However, this list can vary from person to person and trip to trip.

- Having made a list of your accessories, you now need to check the luggage and bags that best suit your needs. If your list of items is short, you should go for tank bags as they are perfect for small sized accessories. Saddlebags, on the other hand, are one of the most commonly purchased and recommended luggage items for super bikes and cruisers. Since they come in different sizes and styles, they suit any style and model of motorbikes.

- A classic variety in saddlebags is panniers, which is often recommended to many bikers. Made of stainless steel or metal, it is one of the most durable types of bike luggage ever designed. Such a bag is almost impossible to be stolen or broken because of its hard shell. Also it is the perfect protection for delicate items in case of accidents.

- Another option is sissy bar bags, which is motorcycle luggage for serious bikers. Tied to the sissy bar of your bike, they serve as a comfortable cushion as well. They are spacious enough to house plenty of accessories.

- Another smart add-on for sport bikes is tail bags, which are somewhat similar to tank bags but are more comfortable to handle and can be strapped onto the bike's tail.

Finally, while checking out the motorcycle luggage in physical and virtual stores, you must make sure of two things: your requirements and quality of the luggage. Once you know your requirements, make sure that the luggage you are buying is secure and sturdy. Do check that it has enough space and that it comes with a sturdy lock. Also check and compare prices via the internet before you head for the market. This way you will not only be sure of the bags you want and their rates, but you will learn a thing or two about these bags' quality.

A wide array of motorcycle luggage is available at great prices at Viking Bags.
